Question should i buy a 7 string?

hi. at the moment i have a jackson dinky with 6 strings. i am thinking of buying a new guitar but i dont know whether to buy a 6 or 7 stringed one. my music is predomonently death and thrash metal (the like of nile, necrophagist, kreator) so should i go for a 7 string? will there be any extra learning that i will have to do or shall i just master the 6 string first? what do you guys think?

oh and i have about 1000 usd to spend so what one? preferably with a emg 707 or something similar. as i want that big chunky tone.

cheers

I'm not trying to be mean, but uhhhh....

Dude, you came to the Sevenstring.org website. Would it surprise you if everyone answered "Buy a 7-string, man!"???

Yeah, we're a little biased around here.

Use the search function. There are tons of threads on exactly the info your looking for. And by the way, welcome to the forum.

For 1000 you can find yourself a nice 7-string (hell you might even have enough money left over to buy another 6 string :p) Of course on this forum 7's come highly reccomended

Ah, a COW. I really wish they hadn't painted the necks on these - and that the neck was maple. All-mahogany is probably too dark for good artculation...

Welcome, man and good luck with getting a 7-string. I recommend an Ibanez RG 7620.

How long have you been playing a 6-string for? I wouldn't say to anyone they should "master" the 6-string before moving on to a 7 (hell I'm the first to admit I'v got a long way to go) but it wouldn't hurt to be plenty familiar up and down the neck. Basically what i'm saying is, you'll get a hell of a lot more outa a seven if you can play comfortably and know your 6-string, if that makes any sense. So if that's the case (and it more than likely is) then HELL YES go pick up a seven string and welcome to the forums dude.

Once you get one, you'll never go back. That's a good thing.
